Verge Halving (March 14)

Verge is just a few days away from its halving which will slash the rewards per block mined. The halving will take place on March 14 when block 5,700,000 is mined. Halvings are typically associated with a price jump, but the fact that Verge undergoes a halving every six months slightly reduces the impact of each one.

Theta Hard Fork (March 14)

The Theta project is experiencing a hard fork on March 14 which will see the release of Theta v3.3.0. This upgrade will lower the Validator Node staking threshold from 2 million to just 200k THETA tokens, allowing far more people to get involved in staking THETA.

The v3.3.0 release will perform at block height 14526120 on 14 March 2022. Binance has already said that it will support the hard fork.
